Excellent location for having breakfast, a quick lunch or above all a tea break in the afternoon. The display of cakes, sweets and pastries is simply impressive. Sometimes crowded, of course.

My friend and I really just came here for the movie, "You've Got Mail." There were so many tables cramped up for a not so large space. There was just too much activity and movement and volume. The menu was average but overpriced.

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,
